So how do you fit in your new Jag.?

I was curious as to how you fit in your car? More to the point, its leg room or lack of. I am 6' 2" with most of my height being between my hips and feet and was wondering about leg room in the F-Type. Also, I have seen images of F-Type interiors that feature flat bottomed steering wheels and wondered if this is an "option" with the car, or is only available within a specific trim package?

RE: So how do you fit in your new Jag.?

I don't have mine yet. 21 August.

When the dealer brought one for me to try on (I'm 6'1" & 270) I asked him to bring it with the top up (I'm 66) to see how tough it was to get into and then how it fit. Great!

I have an E63 AMG that I bought for comfort (:P) and the numbers say that the F-Type has 37" of head room to the E's 37.9", 56.5" of shoulder room to the E's 57.8", and 43" of leg room to the E's 41.3".

The E63 is the most comfortable car I've ever owned; especially for long trips and I'm pretty sure I will NEVER drive the F-Type with the seats (performance; can't speak to the regular ones) all the way back. I'd never be able to put the pedals on the floor.

Try one on for size.

The flat bottom steering wheel is part of the performance pack. You can get the performance pack on the V6S and V8S models. I did this pack on my V8S and love the flat bottom steering wheel.
